I'm Kristen Bonk and I'm the lead artist at Socially Notified. How can I help you?

In this day and age, when everyone has access to the internet, you need to be on social media. To stand out on social media is an art and it pays to work with an artist.

What makes me different? 

I HATE bad social media. Searching online for a random picture to post on your page serves no purpose.

I believe every social media post should have a purpose. 

The main goal for each social media post is to provide helpful information to your audience.
But, the art to it all can be seen in short, but clear messages. 

Customer service is a HUGE deal to me. I will come to your business and take pictures plus video to ensure we tell your company story online. It's important to me that you approve the social media posts, since it's your story I'm trying to tell. Need help with a press release and media pitch? I like to do that too. If your website needs updating, I would LOVE to help with that too. 

Lately I’ve been focusing a lot of my attention and study on the book of Romans, chapter 12, verses 6-8 where it says:

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads,[a] with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”

While reading “Discover Your Children’s Gifts” by Don and Katie Fortune, I realized that my God-Given gift is probably to be an Exhorter. The exhorter is the mouth of the Body of Christ, because we like to talk…a lot! I am not much of a fan of the word Exhorter because it sounds weird to say and it’s not a word I use often in my vocabulary. I much more prefer the word encourager. I like how they explain it in “Discover Your Child’s God-Given Gift”, “We believe God has endowed exhorters with fluid facility in speech because words can encourage.”

Since 2008, I have helped promote over 400 businesses, restaurants, and professional services as well as nonprofit causes and events on social media. In doing so, I recognize what is great and bad social media marketing. My main goal for being Socially Notified is to help companies have great social media marketing. 

I love working with travel and tourism industry, custom retail shops, fitness and martial arts studios, educational companies, restaurants, breweries, and non-profit organizations. I ultimately truly enjoy learning about a company's story, their product, and ways we can work together to connect with their audience.  

A few years back...

I was preparing the company pitch to several marketing influencers. To better listen and understand what their writing wants and needs were, I turned on the social media notifications from their channels. I built many relationships with these writers, I prepared well, and consequently, I won the Journalist Choice Award. 

After that great success, I turned on social media notifications from all the great masters in the industry. Hence the name, Socially Notified!
